Hacking4Humanity Mentors

Volunteer as a Mentor!

What is a Hacking4Humanity mentor?

Mentoring is an integral part of most hackathons, including Hacking4Humanity. Mentors are floating resources for students and will help teams using their areas of expertise. As a mentor, you will assist hackers with their idea formation and offer subject matter or technical advice to help them progress with their projects. We’ll give you a name tag with your area of expertise, and students will find you as they need you—or stop by their group and see how you can help.

How long do I need to be there?

The hackathon is 24 hours, but don’t worry, we’re just asking for a shift from you!

Shifts available: Friday, March 20, 6 pm - 9 pm; Saturday, March 21, 9 am - 12 pm; 12 pm - 4 pm

Please feel free to come early if you would like to listen to our keynote speaker.

Do I need technical expertise? Or expertise related to disinformation?

You don’t need both! We are looking to have a healthy mix of mentors with technical expertise and also with subject matter expertise on human trafficking. Each is critical to the success of the event.

How do I sign up?

Fill out this brief survey and someone will be in touch!
